In this riveting book talk, former Yosemite National Park Superintendent Robert Binnewies tells not only the history of Yosemite but also the story of the collision between commercialism and preservation. Indigenous peoples knew of Yosemite for thousands of years before it was “discovered” and invaded during the California Gold Rush. Since that time, its stewards have struggled to find an incisive balance that allows for use, but prevents abuse. Binnewies urges all United States citizens, to be ever watchful of Yosemite’s wellbeing.
